Firefox - Exchange 2016 and NS_ERROR_NET_INADEQUATE_SECURITY

I'm working on an Exchange 2016 migration project and it was all looking good. We setup the load balancer and verified it worked for OWA and Outlook. Things were good.

Today we did the switch over and updated the DNS records to route all of the client traffic through Exchange 2016. IE and Edge were fine, but Firefox gave an error:
Protocol issues for web browsers, certificates, and web servers can be tricky. It's hard to track it down with generic error messages like this. So, as an alternative to figuring out the details, I used IIS Crypto from Nartac with the best practices settings on the Exchange 2016 servers. After those were applied all was good. Just apply the settings and reboot.

For more about using the free IIS Crypto to see:
UPDATE: Here is an ongoing thread from the Exchange Technet forums. Seems to be known issue for Exchange 2016 at this point.
